As President Clinton tries to build a case for US military intervention in Haiti to restore to power President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, he is not finding many vocal allies among the ousted leader's influential supporters in Boston.
Dessima Williams, a sociology professor at Brandeis University and prominent Aristide supporter who led a recent local delegation of observers to Haiti, said she opposes the invasion for "moral, political reasons." Williams questioned whether democracy could be advanced through a military strike.
Williams is one of the few Aristide supporters who have spoken publicly against the invasion. Some of Aristide's detractors have been more vocal.
